The iFusion SF1 Metal 3D Printer is based on Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) technology. Over 30,000 man-hours of Innovation and R & D have gone into its development.
The iFusion SF1 Metal 3D Printer produces parts with high structural integrity along with the required surface finish and mechanical properties. With the unique combination of a 500 Watt Laser and a larger build chamber in its class, it is a game changer and meets the requirements of entry and mid-level component manufacturers.
Additive manufacturing enables the production of parts which are of lower weight, complex geometric designs, while meeting the same strength requirements as parts manufactured by conventional means. In the Aerospace sector, additive manufacturing is often used for producing light weight, strong aerospace parts like fuel nozzles and turbine blades.
The automotive industry combines additive manufacturing and simulation to create prototypes that can be tested for form, fit and performance. This results in lower initial investment, shortens the development phase of the product life cycle, and enables a faster time-to-market for new models. Parts like intake manifold, fuel pumps, flow control valves, lamp parts, and mirror moulds are developed using additive manufacturing.
The dental industry employs additive manufacturing for producing customised crowns, bridge implants, and complete/partial dentures made to patient-specific requirements. It enables generation of precise and smooth surfaces with minimal post-processing.
Medical & Healthcare Industry
The orthopaedics and medical industry demand high-precision, perfectly fitting, patient-specific customized implants like Implants for joints (Titanium cups for hip and knee implants), Cranio-Maxillofacial implants, Implantable heart valves and Rib cages.
Academic, Universities and R&D institutes
The iFusion SF1 is a perfect fit for Universities and R & D institutes carrying out instruction and research in rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing. SF1’s optional AMOptoMet opens up print parameter generation by allowing new parameters to be developed to print with customized alloys or develop new ones. A competitive price point and local availability of spares and support keeps the operational and maintenance cost low.
